Degrees and Certifications:
BS Elementary Education Master's Degree Child and Family Studies
Let me introduce myself to you! I have been teaching in NC for over 23 years. I attended Appalachian State University and then went on to obtain by Masters degree from UNC-Charlotte. My philosophy of teaching is that you need to focus on the whole child not just parts such as reading, math, etc. If we do not focus on all aspects of a child's development then he/she will never be successful in other areas. One way to accomplish this goal is by creating a partnership with the families in my classroom. You are your child's first and most important teacher. By working together in a collaborative manner, we can ensure that your child will reach his/her fullest potential.
When I am not teaching, I enjoy spending time with my family! I have a fifteen year old daughter that keeps me on my toes! We enjoy going to the beach for some relaxation and fun when time permits.
I look forward to getting to know each of you this year!
